Fresh European Blood D:

Frostybolty
Hi, my names Frosty and I'm a new guy who started on ACV when it was released but didn't play much outside of with friends.

I play fighting games competitively, or at least part of the competitive scene here in Europe, specialising in "anime" games. Mainly Arcana Heart and Melty Blood. Then I saw a vid of some ACFA and wanted to get into ACV again.

So yeah, here's my attempt at playing some. Im from Europe, I'm bad, I'm also slightly weird. Take care of me :3

Also while I'm here, if there are any other Europeans here, I've made an IRC channel if you want to come in and chat, it's alot easier to IRC than to type on PSN/XBL :/

Channel: #ACV.EU
Server: irc.rizon.net

"Lets make some money"

PS: Shoutouts to SouthQ for getting me back into ACV

I don't know if I'll be able to really be active on these forums tbh, mainly because I'm so new there wouldn't really be anything to really contribute in terms of information, theory or advice. In fact I'm the one who needs all the advice lol

So yeah, just looking for games and going to improve via straight experience first, just wanted to introduce myself :p

Hey it's no big deal! Post a thread for whatever questions you have and we'll be sure to have you up to speed in no time at all. ACV has a serious learning curve as I'm sure you know. Don't be shy!

Tetrapod Weather Clouds?! What system are you on?

I don't see too many Floaters/Fortresses on XBL other than from certain people.

I see. Yep my first time against a Fortress Quad was quite the experience. My skill level made it almost impossible to kill too, if I recall correctly. If you find yourself having trouble with Tetrapods, consider bringing a ULR-09/R Tuned for Rapid Fire [Or Accuracy]. I tend to use a Karasawa or Pulse Gun, but the 09 is a very potent tool for fighting Tetras. However, if it means taking off a Sniper (Looks like you enjoy double snipers...) I would recommend against it.

I agree with you there. Which snipers may I ask? I like to mix it up when I snipe, varying the damage and impact can be pretty useful in some cases. Then and again I'm crazy about build utility outside of the common Dual Weapons front and Dual Weapons back, so I know it's not for everyone.

Ahh, USR-12/R is what I think you're referring to. I love those snipers. They make me drool :D

Goody! Newbie-Blood!

Normally I'd absolutely want nothing to do with bringing you up to speed but since I'm not directly doing any training... I feel like I like you a little.

Why don't you post your build and we can work on improving that? Not to doubt you, but if you're plateauing in skill it's normally the AC that's giving you trouble. Playstyle meshing and all that stuff :)

Wow great! You're in the right direction already!

Ok... to start off, that Rugerro KE head can switch over to a Perseus CE head. There will be a noticeable change in your performance... though Rugerro is really good on a lightweight... well we'll say that is optional.

Now, arms. If your weight will let you get away with changing to UAM-23/I or Animas [TE Category Arms] you will glean a very important firing-stability boost.

Otherwise you have a very unique and effective build there my friend! You've almost certainly got potential.

The last thing is the Recon... for me there is literally only one recon unit in the game, and that is the Max Range Tracking Type. I don't know the name because I never change it. If you are using it, good for you! If not, consider changing to it. It's really useful.

Yeah I'm using the max ranged tracking

The Perseus head goes overweight, the Animas goes overweight. So I switched to UAM-23/I

Guess its just time for more playing

Thanks for that advice

Yeah don't mention it. Too bad about Perseus.

Your other option is the Fuxi [CE Head], which boasts amazing Camera, Scan, and Stability. I don't use Rugerro but... it's probably very useful on this build. Sorry that I keep trying to change the head, it's like a weird itch.

Keep practicing and you should be alright, good luck!
